(Cloud) Tip of the Day: Azure Networking May 2018 announcements

Today's tip...

A few weeks ago, we had Microsoft Build 2018, our premiere event of the year for our gifted developer audience. With a strong appetite for technology and a desire to learn and immerse themselves in new ways to build and create cloud applications, thousands of software professionals and coders came to Seattle.

We’d like to take this opportunity to let you know about new networking services we have launched as well as enhancements we have made.

Azure DDoS Protection

We recently announced the general availability (GA) of the Azure DDoS Protection Standard service that provides enhanced DDoS mitigation capabilities for your application and resources deployed in virtual networks (VNets). DDoS Protection can be simply enabled with no application or resource changes so that your services benefit from the same DDoS technologies we use to protect Microsoft.

VNet Service Endpoints

VNet Service Endpoints extend your VNet private address space to Azure services. This allows you to limit access to business-critical Azure resources to only your VNets, fully removing Internet access. All traffic through a service endpoint stays in Azure.

Azure DNS enhancements

Azure DNS Private Zones is now in public preview, providing secure and reliable name resolution for your VNets without needing custom DNS servers. You can bring DNS zones to your VNet.

Connection Monitoring

Network Watcher Connection Monitor, now generally available, helps you easily monitor and alert on connectivity and latency from a VM to another VM, FQDN, URI, or IPv4 address with per minute granularity.
